Chauncey Billups said that teammate Blake Griffin might be "too nice" on the court.

Billups made the comments while appearing on ESPN's "First Take" program. He was asked if he thinks Griffin is soft. "I don't agree that Blake Griffin is soft. But what I will say about Blake is that he's maybe too nice of a guy. Because there's been times in games where people take shots at Blake," Billups said. "He's ... too soft of a guy inside for him to be like, 'All right, I'm just going to hurt somebody.' He just won't do it. I wish he would, and I think that people would look at him a lot different if he did that. But he's just not that kind of person." Griffin has never blocked more than 0.7 shots per game over the course of a season and his rebounding average sunk to 8.3 in 2012-13.

Tyler Johnson scored a career-high 26 points against the Suns on Monday with one rebound, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers on 10-of-13 from the field in 26 minutes.

It was also more points than he scored in any of his college games at Fresno State. Needless to say, nobody saw this coming with three consecutive DNP-CDs coming into this game. There were 102 players who logged minutes tonight and only one of them, DeMar DeRozan, had more points than Johnson tonight. Plus Johnson had a 90.8 true shooting percentage. Stats aside, Goran Dragic only played 15 minutes, which really helped Johnson. Unless you're in a really deep league, we're going to have to see Johnson score in double digits with Dragic out there for more than 30 minutes.

Deron Williams scored 22 points on 8-of-19 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, four assists and one steal in the Nets' 110-108 win over the Warriors on Monday.

The All Star break probably gave him a chance to rest his chronically injured ankles and owners just have to ride Williams until the wheels fall off. If your trade deadline hasn't passed, it's also a good time to sell-high.

Brook Lopez scored 26 points off the bench in Monday's win over the Warriors, hitting 11-of-22 shots with six rebounds and one block in 26 minutes.

Lopez is a threat to do this on any given night but the problem is that he is also putting up way too many duds. The result is a top 85-95 value over the last month and the only good news is that he's staying on the floor. Jarrett Jack joined the party with a pretty jumper to win the game in the final moments.

P.J. Tucker scored 20 points with 14 boards, three assists and one 3-pointer against the Heat on Monday.

He crashed the boards all night and played a team-high 41 minutes tonight. Following the game, coach Jeff Hornacek said after the game that his team is "soft" and the Suns "look like a high school team."Tucker is not soft at all and those quotes suggest he is a lock for minutes in the upper 30s. He should be owned in all leagues.

DeMar DeRozan exploded for a season-high 35 points against the 76ers during a 114-103 win, adding nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

It was against the 76ers, but DeRozan needed this one in a big way. He is coming off a putrid February, averaging 16.7 points, 4.2 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.2 treys on 33.9 percent from the field. With Kyle Lowry (finger) likely out for a couple, DeMar can start to get it going.
Mar 2 - 10:54 PM

Sideline reporter Jennifer Hale reported that Anthony Davis (shoulder) is close to returning to game action.

We're not quite sure where that puts him, just like an earlier report stating the Pelicans weren't going to rush him back was similarly vague. We're in the second week of his 1-2 week timetable and as long as there isn't a setback his return is essentially imminent.
Mar 2 - 10:44 PM

Nerlens Noel made all seven shots from the field for 17 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block against the Raptors on Monday.

His offensive game has been the story lately. Perhaps the highlight is making 83.3 percent of his 6.0 free throw attempts per game over his last five, averaging 13.4 points, 9.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.4 blocks, 1.2 steals and 2.6 turnovers on 48.8 percent from the field. He's one of the hottest properties in fantasy hoops right now.

Jamal Crawford (calf) will not return on Monday.

He has a calf contusion, which means it's not a muscle strain. That's important to note because Crawford has a history of calf injuries. With Crawford out, Austin Rivers is really going to have to step up. He's only worth a look in deep leagues. Crawford finished with nine points, two boards and one 3-pointer.

Hassan Whiteside and Alex Len were ejected for wrestling on Monday night.

This game in Miami is one of the most emotional ones of the season. Whiteside tried to tackle Len and there's certainly a chance he gets hit with a suspension for this one. He finished with 17 points, 10 boards, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes. He's a better basketball player than a tackler and his owners are going to be hoping for mercy from the NBA in hopes he doesn't get suspended.
Mar 2 - 9:46 PM

Markieff Morris was ejected for a flagrant 2 foul on Goran Dragic in the third quarter.

It was a hard foul in transition that sent Dragic to the floor hard, but Markieff's reputation might have hurt him here for the flagrant 2 call. Morris probably won't be suspended for this infraction, but he picked up another technical foul tonight and is a strong bet to be suspended for too many in one season. He finished with 13 points, five boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes. You can check out a video of the foul in the link below.
Mar 2 - 9:19 PM

Jordan Hamilton is expected to start for Matt Barnes on Monday.

He played two minutes on Sunday and he is very unlikely to play more than 20 minutes tonight. Hamilton had himself a nice run in the D-League this season, but he's not a fantasy option in almost any league.
